More challenge fun!

I'm on a challenge roll! Today I decided to play along with this week's Pink Elephant challenge which is to add green to your color combo. My color combo also fits in with this week's Try It Out Tuesday again (Pink, Sage and White). I used the sketch layout from Mercy's sketch (MTSC62) from last week (I'm a little late playing along but I really like last week's sketch).

For my card, I inked up another one of my brand new Elisabeth Bell stamps from SCACD. I absolutely LOVE these new Elisabeth Bell images! Today I used "New Friends". Isn't she just the sweetest image ever! You can purchase each of the new Elisabeth Bell images separately or you can buy the entire sheet of 7 stamps for an incredibly deal! I stamped my main image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. The image is cut out with my Spellbinders circle Nestibilities...(And speaking of Spellbinders....Susana has the NEW Spellbinders Nestibilities in stock- Her prices are the best around too!). I finished off my card with some self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

I found some time to do another sketch challenge this week. This time I played along with the Friday Sketchers sketch challenge.

Paper Pretties March Release!

I hope everyone is having a great week! This week Paper Pretties released several new rubber and digi images. Today I'm giving you a sneak peak of the March Stamp of The Month. This stamp will be sent out to SOTM members this month and will be available in the Paper Pretties boutique to buy next month.
This new Sophia is just the cutest! The set is called "You're Maarvelous". This image totally reminds me of Annabelle. She is constantly dressing up...I'm talking like every single day, LOL. I had to add lots of glitter and some Sparkly Fluff to this cutie!
Be sure to check out the Paper Pretties boutique to see all of the March new releases!

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge and a Blog Hop!

It's Wednesday! That means it is time for another fun Wednesday Prettie Challenge and blog hop! This week our challenge comes from the incredibly talented Prettie Girl Frances! I always love the sketches Frances comes up with!

This week the design team will be using either the set Always in My Heart or Cuddle Me. I absolutely LOVE both of these stamp sets! Both stamp sets featured this week will be on sale for 20% off all week. Also be sure to check out the new digi stamp section of the boutique, Christie is adding new digis all the time!

Here is this week's sketch:

For my card, I used the set Always in My Heart. I honestly think this is my favorite Sophia EVER. She is just so stinkin cute! I paired her up with some fun Basic Grey Sugar Rush designer paper and coordinating brad.

If you are just starting at my blog, head on over to Christie's blog to start from the beginning. You definitely won't want to miss any of the stops! If you are following the hop, the next stop after my blog is the blog of Prettie Girl Kristy!

Try It Out Tuesday!!!!

This is my 2nd post for today. Please be sure to scroll down to see my card for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge!

I have some SUPER EXCITING news to share today! A week or so ago I got an email from Susana, from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, asking me if I would be interested in joining her design team for the next few months. I can't tell you how incredibly excited I was. I am completely in love with the GORGEOUS stamps Susana sells, as well as all of the other fabulous products in her store. It honestly took me about 2 seconds to make my decision!
Today is my first official Try It Out Tuesday as part of the SCACD design team and I am just absolutely giddy! This week's challenge {TIOT57} is a color challenge: Pink, Sage/Moss Green and White/Cream.

If you aren't familiar with SCACD I highly recommend you take a few minutes and browse through the store... you won't be disappointed!! Susana carries so many fabulous, top of the line products and her customer service is the best I've ever seen! For my card, I picked several of my favorite products from her store to use. Of coarse I just had to ink up one of SCACD's newly released Elisabeth Bell images. These new images are just incredible. This image is called "Oh Baby". Isn't she just the cutest thing ever! There were 7 new Elisabeth Bell images released and you can order them individually or you can order the entire Sampler Edition #3 collection for a fabulous discounted price! I also used some gorgeous new Prima flowers. Susana has a ton of the new Prima Innoscence flowers in stock. I LOVE these white flowers because they are completely customizable. You can leave them white, spray them with Shimmerz Spritz or Smooch Spritz, or you can even color them with Copic markers. I also used some of the pretty Prima mini roses. These are the perfect sized accent to go along with the bigger flowers. The gem accents in the corner are Kaiser self adhesive gems.

I also incorporated a couple other challenges into my card. My layout comes from this week's Taylored Expression sketch challenge and I also played along with the "It's All About Texture" challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges.
Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the incredibly talented SCACD design team members for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have an incredible day!
